Amphibious Architecture removed
Last week GASP had divers onsite to remove the water-based components of Natalie Jeremijenko's public artwork Amphibious Architecture.
The work had not functioned for some time and it was deemed past its useful life. Local divers Subsea Access suited up to drag out the parts which over the intervening period had become a home for multiple riverine species including mussels and barnacles, as originally predicted by the artist.
Public artworks have varying lifespans which are often shortened by the environment they're placed in, particularly salt water. Other components of the work, including information panels will be removed successively.
